Volunteering in Valencia

I have the best memories of my volunteer program in Valencia. The whole process with Volunteering Solutions ( including the team in Spain) from start to finish - was easy and well executed .The project with children was an eye opener and The time I spent with the children and the other teachers will always be etched in my heart . I’m still amazed at the amazing work they do and the impact it has on the lives of these kids and on society, at large . My host family were the most loving and warmest people ever ! They looked after me so well and supported me with everything and went out of their way to make my stay so wonderful ! They are my family for life ! Thank you Sahil , Marta and team for one of the best experiences in my life ! It has made such a difference to it . Always grateful !

Making a difference in children's lives, while traveling abroad!

In the summer of 2015, I was fortunate enough to travel abroad to Spain with my mother and sister. Although they wanted to make the trip, they weren’t totally sold on my idea of volunteering on their vacation. However, by the end of our holiday I had changed their minds!

We spent 3 weeks in Valencia, Spain where we volunteered with children at risk of social exclusion. Being a kindergarten teacher myself, I knew this was a program where we could make a real difference.

We spent our first week helping to coordinate a summer camp, plan activities and excursions, and organized our schedule for each day. I was pleasantly surprised that our ideas were taken seriously and implemented into the agenda! During the next two weeks, we helped the kiddos with their homework, assisted with English-speaking skills, played games, and even made a trip to the local pool where we were able to teach some swimming lessons (another passion my family and I shared)!

Because our volunteering hours were Monday-Friday, we were able to travel to different parts of Spain on the weekends and afternoons. Some of our trips included: Barcelona, Madrid, Ibiza, and Seville. Our trip coordinator gave us a tour of the city the first day we arrived, and advised us of the best ways to travel. This was extremely helpful and eased any previous anxieties. The accommodations were spacious, centrally located, and safe! We made several friends along the way with other volunteers and enjoyed every part of our adventure.

Overall I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to make an impact on children’s lives, while traveling abroad. The relationships we built there will be cherished for a lifetime. I cannot wait for our next trip!

three weeks in Valencia

I went to Valencia with a friend to help children aged from 8 to 10 do there homework. We were spending aproximatly 4 hours each day with the same class. But obviously the children weren't studying this long. I learnt to play the 1,2,3 ball game and a few others with the boys. I used to draw a lot with girls, but we also listened to music, took pictures, visited the garden in the school...
I couldn't speak Spanish fluently, but well enough to understand each other and share unforgattable moments. I hope I will be back in Valencia soon.

What would you improve about this program?
The social could be improved. Make the differents volunteers meet with each other by organizing small events as simple as going in a cafe.

A great and fruitful stay in Beautiful Denia, Spain!

I had a great volunteering experience in Spain Marine Project, 2014.
Each day, we had different job to do. We cleaned the beach, the trails, the mountains, the ocean...etc. while enjoyed the natural beauty of Mt. Mongo and the mediterranean sea. Detection of the invasive plants and had broaden my view for new species.

The forest fire control and prevention is also an important thing to do since it had it's worst drought in Denia the year. I had a wonderful stay in Denia, with its unforgettable beautiful nature scene.

What would you improve about this program?
It was good to me, actually. I couldn't found anything that need to be improved so far.
